Stop the presses (and/or The Spectator) because Gossip Girl is back! We've waited too long to live vicariously through Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and her gang of elites on the Upper East Side. Wait, scratch that. Upper East Side? We mean BROOKLYN. This latest episode finds Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle) living back at chez Humphrey as a result of being kicked out of their chic digs by one Ivy Dickens (Kaylee DeFer), who inherited the place from the now deceased grandmother CeCe (Caroline Lagerfelt). Serena's working overtime at Nate's (Chace Crawford) Spectator gossip news site trying to write the in-depth story of how Ivy stole her cousin Lola's (Ella Rae Peck) identity and her family's fortune. But does the real Gossip Girl make her an offer she can't refuse?
In Blair (Leighton Meester) Land, there's a whole lotta luvvin' NOT going on with new BF LonelyBoy, aka Dan (Penn Badgley). Are they better off just being friends or will an elevator solve their problems? And what about Chuck (Ed Westwick)? Seems Mr. Bass is trying to find out the real person who gave blood to save his life and it's not who he expected. Oh, and Serena's dad, William Van Der Woodsen (Billy Baldwin), is still on the scene, trying to manipulate Ivy and keep the secret of his I'm-your-dad identity from Lola, and we think something mayjah's gonna kick off where that's concerned. Did we mention there was also a party, a blood drive, and a bottle of vodka making a cameo appearance? If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
